Rates

The provincial Ministry of Health is responsible for setting the rates and determining methods of payment for long-term/residential care in Canada. Because of this, rates and options differ from province to province. Please select a location below so that we can give you the most accurate information possible.

ONTARIO

Accommodation rates for long-term care homes in Ontario are set by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC). This covers the nursing care and food, with the resident/family responsible for a co-payment to cover all accommodation services. To view the current co-payment rates for a shared room (also called basic or standard accommodations), or a private room (known as preferred accommodations), click here.
 
Some residents may be eligible for a rate reduction. For more information visit the MOHLTC or CCAC websites.

BRITISH COLUMBIA

Accommodation rates for long-term/residential care in British Columbia fall under two categories: government-subsidized care and private-pay care.

Government-subsidized care:
If you fit the eligibility criteria, the British Columbia Ministry of Health may subsidize part of your costs for long-term/residential care.

You will pay a monthly rate of up to 80 per cent of your after-tax income. This is subject to minimum and maximum monthly rates.

Some residents may be eligible for a rate reduction.

For more information, visit the British Columbia Ministry of Health website.

Privately-paid care:
Privately-paid for long-term/residential care is not subsidized by the government, and rates are based on market prices. Contact your insurance company or veteran’s affairs to see if they may cover part of your costs.

For more information, contact the home of your choice.
